The 25-year-old deGrom took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and wound up throwing seven shutout innings. He allowed three hits, walked one, and struck out four. In the process, his ERA shrunk to a miniscule 0.50.
Coming into the 2014 season, deGrom was looked at as someone who would likely make a shift to the pen – perhaps as soon as this season. That still may be the case, but he’s certainly opening eyes as a starter early in the campaign.
Las Vegas won the game 6-3.
Also notable Tuesday night for Las Vegas:
- In the third game of his rehab stint, Chris Young went 1 for 4 with a run scored.
- Wilmer Flores went 2 for 4 with three RBI and a run scored.
- Josh Edgin tossed a scoreless ninth to earn the save.
